"This book has been my best friend for the past few months"
This book has been my best friend for the past few months -- a book that's stayed by my bed at night and within reach during the day, the whole time I've been taking care of my terminally ill brother. It's a smart, conversational mix of practical tips, real-life experience and honest advice, even able to make me laugh at myself when I've been all tied up in knots. Most importantly, the authors keep reminding me that I'm not alone. I suppose some people will read "OK Now What?" from cover to cover, but for me, it's been a book to flip through until I found the "Caregiver Tip" that fit the current dilemma, or a section that helped orient me to what was coming next. Being a caregiver for someone you love is hard and lonely work, and Sue Collins and Nancy Taylor Robson have been the non-judgmental friend I've needed. Thanks.
